Is this the song,... I had never heard of it before...

I didn't tab it out or anything, but seems he's keeping the rhythm and running his notes on the lower end of the harp
mostly 1 through 4. I think once you get the rhythm going you can add the single notes as your ability allows.
That way you could have fun with the tune and start getting your "chops" together as you go along.

..and of course ..have fun..

Great work Sarge! I especially liked baby face, I haven't heard much vamping on chromatic before.

Looking forward to more.

Hi harpsquealer.

Thanks for your search and reply. I already have this tab to the lyrics of RTTJ.
What I am searching for is the brilliant harp solos in between the singing. I could listen to the song and try and 'wing' the solos but would probably never be able to get it right.

Cheers.

Lithy.

Hello

For the cross slide harmonica the notes are laid out differently on the reed plates. Imagine a C harmonica tuning. With the slide out the two first two notes C and D are in the first hole on the upper reed plate and E and F in the second hole are on the lower reed plate In the third hole comes G and A on the upper reed plate and so forth. With the slide pressed in the first two notes are in the first hole are C# and D# and located on the lower reed plate. In the second hole F and F# are located on the upper reed plate etc.
On the straight slide harmonica, however, all the tones are on the upper reed plate when the slide is out and on the lower reed plate when the slide is pressed in.

Hi Lithy,

I don't know if this is what you were looking for but this is what I found from harptabs.com

Verse 1.
6 -6 -6 6 -6 -6 6 -6 -6 7 -6
Thought it was a nightmare, Lo,it`s all so true
6 -6 -6 -6 -6 -6-6 -6 5
They told me, "Don`t go walkin` slow `Cause
6-6 -6 7 -6
Devil`s on the loose,"
Chorus
6 6 6 -6 -6 -6-6
Better Run Through The Jungle
6 6 6 -6 -6 -6-6
Better Run Through The Jungle
6 6 6 -6 -6 -6-6
Better Run Through The Jungle
-6 -6 5 -4 4 b-3
Woa, Don`t look back to see
2.
Thought I heard a rumblin` Callin` to my name
Two hundred million guns are loaded
Satan cries "Take aim"
REPEAT CHORUS
3.
Over on the mountain thunder magic spoke
"Let the people know my wisdome
Fill the land with smoke"
REPEAT CHORUS (a few times)

keep on harpsquealin'!

Here's a good old song called Babyface. I had a reed stick right at the end of the song; bummer! I thought I had that reed fixed so it wouldn't do that.

Note layouts are the same, standard solo. Unless you order something else from Seydel, who will make you whatever you want.
Suzuki makes their 12s in a few keys. C D A G I believe. Maybe more.

Hi Lithy

Welcome to the club, I live in Canberra and originally from UK (London). Practically neighbours obviously. You should scoot over to the song of the month activities under Techniques and Learning to play.

Then what is the note pattern in a C cross slide harp at slide out and in position?

Secondly, is Scx12 available in different keys like Seydel Deluxe?

AndyT replied to the topic 'Wabash Cannonball February Song of the MonthThe Wa' in the forum. 12 hours 14 minutes ago

I finally got a start on this tune today, and it seems like a lot of fun, and more opportunities to vamp (usual caveats re terminology) the life out of it.

On a side note, though I know the Wabash Cannonball is a fictional train, or originated as fictional but one made real later, I'm reading a book I read in my heady youth, 'Old Glory' by Jonathan Raban. It's a travelogue about him taking a boat down the Mississippi, from Minneapolis/St. Paul to New Orleans. And by boat, I mean a small one with an outdoor motor, not a cruise ship.

This morning was all about his stay at Wabasha. You should check it out if you can.

Now, that's too bad! I hadn't been tempted to get a chromatic until hearing that.

Ok, here's a thread for all the chromatic harmonica players to post a song. Maybe we can all learn some new songs from each other. I"ll start off with my rendition of Up the Lazy River.

I bet you'll get the hang of learning by ear really quickly, Erk. In the way of encouragement, learning a tune by ear gets faster each time you do it. Find a version of the tune you really like--a version that grabs your interest and that you think is done well. Sing along until you've got the tune in your head. The cool thing about these old time tunes is that they were meant to be sung--sung by regular people just for the enjoyment of it. That's why I love this music! Even most of the tunes that now are known as instrumental fiddle tunes used to have words, and they're all such fun to sing. Once you've got the tune in your head, it'll come out really easily.
